MHKDesigns: Framed Favorites

Hi, all! I'm back with another card using the *NEWLY RELEASED* Framed Favorites digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! I went almost one layer for this card. Take a peek...

I created my card in Photoshop. I added some texture to the background, the added the wreath and sentiment from the Framed Favorites digital stamp set. I added more color to the wreath using various brushes.

Some burlap ribbon and washi tape were added to give more balance and texture to the card. I then punched the bottom corners to add a finished feel. I love this so much, and I hope you like it, too! Please feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

MHKDesigns: January Challenge + Framed Favorites Release!

Hello and Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your year is prosperous and full of success and peace! I'm here today to share a card for this month's challenge at MHKDesigns. I've revamped how my Etsy shop will be running this year, so our challenge posts will ALSO include a monthly release set! This month's set is called...

And here is our challenge inspiration:

I decided to go shabby chic with my creation. I did a lot of layering and had tons of fun making this card! Take a peek...

I used Photoshop to create my panel before printing it out multiple times. The wreath and sentiment are from the Framed Favorites digital stamp set, the feathers are from the Fanciful Feathers digital stamp set, and the flowers are from the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set.

I added some cheesecloth, twine, jewels, and pins to add more texture to the focal panel. The sentiment was die cut and matted with dark brown. The panel was matted with the same color. I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too! I can't wait to hear your comments below!

Thanks for stopping by, friends! Come join in the fun on the MHKDesigns blog for your chance to win some digi goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

House of Cards January Challenge

Hi, all, and Happy New Year! It's time for our first challenge of the year at House of Cards, and we have a super fun inspiration photo/challenge for you! We'd like you to...

Create a mixed media project and/or use these colors!

I decided to kinda do both. I chose to work with digital images from MHKDesigns to create a digital mixed media project that uses my scriptural theme for 2018! Take a peek...

I used images from the Butterfly Wisdom, Chicken In, and Fabulously Fall digital stamp sets, as well as paper from the Rosy Posy digital paper pack for this print. I love the bold colors and can't wait to have it framed and up in my home! What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments below! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take a bit of time to come and play along with us at House of Cards.  Don't forget to stop by the other DT members' blogs for even MORE amazing inspiration--they always blow me away!  I'll be back later this month with more crafty posts!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Merry Christmas Clocks!

Hi, friends! Sorry I've been so quiet this month. I have still been healing from surgery and trying to also recover from an upper respiratory infection gifted to me by a student as an early Christmas gift! ;) I love my job, but the germs are really making it hard this year!

BUT, let's move on to happier things! I have a gift idea that I want to share with you! I gave these as Christmas gifts, but they would make a wonderful Valentine gift, as well! Take a peek...

These were VERY easy to put together. I just purchased 2 clocks from WalMart, then opened them up and added photos. The "sentiment" was made with stickers. Here are some close-ups...

I love them and am so happy with how they turned out! I hope this has inspired you to create today! Thanks for stopping by and MERRY CHRISTMAS! I'll be back more in the upcoming year! Until then, HUGS and happy crafting!
